Learning New Songs

Sometimes it is an orderly process.  Someone wants to do a certain song, pitches it, maybe even makes a rough demo, and the other guys learn their parts before we even get together to try it.  Other times, it's more organic.  Someone starts playing a riff or singing something, we jump in on other parts, usually dividing the vocals up hi-mid-low by default, and we give it a try.  This was closer to the latter scenario.  Then, we foolishly decided to capture this particularly half-baked idea on video (from 2.5 angles, as one camera went down mid-song).  Some editing ensued, and well...here you go.  Not ready for prime time, but a fair enough glimpse at the process.  I think this was the second full pass at this song.
